This is the modal radial array tool.
It adds an array modifier to the selected object with an easily adjustable segment number
You can change a number of segments by scrolling or typing a number on a keyboard.
Axis of the array can be changed to X, Y or Z local axis of the object by pressing XYZ axis keys. Or you can choose the view axis by pressing V key.
The center of the array can be set to the object pivot or 3D cursor.
If you try to add an additional radial array to an object that already has it, the tool will pick up an existing modifier and allow you to edit it.
Add linked duplicates of the object radially around the 3D cursor.
You can change a number of duplicates by scrolling or typing it on a keyboard. Rotation is performed around local X, Y, Z axis or view Z axis (which can be switched by XYZV keys).
Duplicated objects will be added to selected object collection, and if it has a parent, then duplicates will inherit it.
After unpacking the .py file to the scripts folder, you can find addon in the "Object" addons category.
